Punkin Prototype

Finished the prototype for the Punkin Hat. There will be a second variation with a different application of decreases at the crown coming up shortly. Like the previous hats in this series, this is knit in Machine Washable/Superwash 100% wool, the Orange is Heirloom from Australia and the stem is from CascadeYarns.







The way the top formed with this set of decreased reminds me of an Ice Cream Cone . . . Giving me ideas for another design.

i love the twisty cords, i'm thinking they would make sweeet fringe on a scarf... did you cast on and then bind off to make it twist like that???

Thanks Femmy.
Knitxcore, the twists are done by casting on a number of stitches (this will be the short side) then on the next row, increase two or three stitches into each of the cast on stitches [i.e., increase by k-1 in the front, k-1 in the back and k-1 in the front again of each of the cast on stitches] when you come to the end, bind off the next row.
Good luck on your scarf.
